Webinar: Responding to Farm Stress

May 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The Brown and Dane County Extension are hosting a program for agribusiness professionals to help them learn to recognize and address farm stress and farmer health. The program will be hosted as two consecutive sessions on May 21, 2020. Dane and Brown County will host the program at 1:00-2:30 pm. The program will be offered via zoom/video conference

The program will train agribusiness professionals in Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR). Agriculture professionals and consultants work closely with farmers and are often in a position to recognize acute stress. Given the appropriate training and skills, they may help recognize when stress is overwhelming, and could refer farmers to appropriate resources.

The mission of the Question, Persuade, Refer program is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training that can make a positive difference in the life of someone you know. QPR consists of these three skills: Question…a person about suicide, Persuade…someone to get help and, Refer…someone to the appropriate resource

There is no cost to attend the program. Each session is limited to 20 attendees. Register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/question-persuade-referqpr-training-for-ag-business-professionals-registration-105261199080?aff=QPR.
